Energy & Utilities

The gusty winds off the North Sea…

According to the EU, Europe needs to be running on 32% renewable energy by 2030. Belgium, like its North Sea neighbours, takes wind energy and green renewals seriously. With planned capacity reaching 30% of total national consumption by 2027, Belgium already ranks 5th worldwide in terms of installed wind energy capacity. Add in the country’s abundant residential solar installations and Belgium has a decent renewal energy mix.

…make Belgium an exciting energy market

The open and competitive green energy market in Belgium is good news for companies and consumers alike – even if there are questions about offshore rights, wind farms’ noise emissions, and energy development subsidies. With different regional policies and fluctuating regional, national and EU regulations, the Belgian energy market remains an exciting place to do business; and at ALTIUS, our in-the-know legal experts are here to help with all the angles.
